Bobby Digital RIP

I heard earlier this week the sad news that Bobby Digital passed away in late May. Bobby was one of the most influential reggae producers of the last 30 years or so, working with the likes of Shabba Ranks, Garnett Silk, Sizzla and many more.

If you want a good introduction to his work I can recommend two 2-CD compilations released on VP Records in 2018. The first is called "X-Tra Wicked" and the second "Serious Time" (although confusingly the song "Serious Time" appears "X-Tra Wicked").

Here are a few selections from the extra album, we'll add some from the serious one next time.  

Belated R.I.P., Mr Digital.

"Sweet Jamaica" - Tony Rebel

"Little Sound Boy" - Johnny Osbourne
